Jackets' win streak halted in 4-1 loss to Valdosta



However, the Wildcats took care of business in the seventh inning, not allowing any hits nor runs, subsequently ending the game and sealing their victory. 

The Wildcats will face the Brunswick Pirates Friday at 4 p.m. for a Region 1-AAAAAA doubleheader in Brunswick for the last two games of their regular season. 

“We’re going to approach the games at Brunswick like it’s critical. We told the kids this week that we have to look at the game like it’s the first round of the playoffs,” said Shuman. “It’s our last chance to play Brunswick this season and we’re going to try to make a good impression.”

The Wildcats will begin the playoffs on May 2 against an opponent that has not been confirmed just yet. To prepare for the playoffs, the Wildcats will continue to take it one day and practice at a time.

The Jackets were officially  eliminated from the state tournament  when Bainbridge lost to Lee County on Tuesday.

Central (11-13, 4-9) will cap its season in Friday’s road doubleheader against Harris County,  a team it fell to in mercy rule fashion on March 14.

“We just want to play well and play enthusiastic,” Central coach Chad Parkerson said. “We want to let those seniors go out with our best effort.

“I’m disappointed we didn’t make the playoffs. I wish we could’ve found a way to win some of those games earlier in the season. But that’s how it goes in the highly competitive region we play in.”
